They should deliver their devices only with a bootloader so that the buyer can decide which Operating system they want to use. They could sponsor a community that provides actualized software images for the Phones.

Germany To End Nuclear Power By 2022

cooldfish Re:By coincidence... (822 comments)

As the article states the Maximum Consumption is at the moment 65,000 MW so the margin is 22%.

Ist zu wenig Strom da, wenn acht Meiler sofort abgeschaltet werden? Nein. 80.000 Megawatt Strom werden nur selten gebraucht. Aktuell liegt der maximale Bedarf zum Beispiel bei rund 65.000 Megawatt. Auch erreicht die Wartung und Pflege von Kraftwerken bald ihren Höhepunkt - in den kommenden Wochen gehen viele Kraftwerke, die momentan stillstehen, wieder ans Netz.

Google Tranlation:

If too little power there, when eight reactors be shut down immediately? No. 80,000 MW electricity will be used only rarely. Currently, the maximum demand is for example about 65,000 megawatts. Also reached the maintenance and care of power plants soon peak - in the coming weeks, many power plants, stand still right now, go back to the grid.

Can We Really Tell Lossless From MP3?

cooldfish You must have an abnormal hearing to differenciate (849 comments)

The german magazine c't made 2000 an test with several people, they found out that the pereson that had the worst hearing was best at differenciating between CD and mp3. That person's hearing had suffered from an explosion and he as only able to hear frequences up to 8kHz on one ear and had a Tinitus on the other ear. He could hear more of the effects from the filters that are applied to mp3 streams. Further (german) info see http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Kreuzverhoertest-287592.html
